Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota Reviews (Top Critics)
By Tushar P Joshi (3.5/5)

Bollywood usually takes itself too seriously. There are only a handful of films where we have got a glimpse of that madness or suspension of belief done right. The genre is interesting and if approached with the correct sensitivity can yield some amazing results. Case study - this week's release Vasan Bala's eccentric Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota.

School life isn't easy for Surya, who is often targeted by bullies for being 'a freak' and he finds an unlikely ally in Supri (Radhika).

Surya (debutant Abhimanyu Dassani) has a rare (superhero) disorder. He can't feel pain. This makes him a misfit - a social outcast, who grows up to believe that he is Karate man, a self-proclaimed vigilante who must fight the bad guys, like the ones who killed his mother (feisty special appearance by Shweta Basu Prasad).

Unbridled zaniness is the glue that holds Vasan Bala's Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota together. A pulsating martial arts action-comedy, the film throbs with life and energy thanks to a deliciously capricious plot, a staccato narrative rhythm punctuated with fractured flashbacks, a tongue-in-cheek directorial style and a soundscape every bit as wacky as everything else that has gone into this flight of whimsy.

Vasan Bala of the un-released film Peddlers fame comes into his own with Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota. Bala delivers a film with a child-like comic book quality with a quirky central premise about a protagonist with a superhero affliction and a family tragedy that makes him want to go after all chain thieves. Indeed, MKDNH gets full marks for its originality in the telling of an imaginative story about Surya (Abhimanyu Dassani), the boy born without any pain receptors in his body, a feature that gets him into a whole lot of trouble.

Surya, the lead character in Vasan Bala's Mard Ko Dard Nahin Hota, has a penchant for telling stories. He also happens to be a closet action hero, but his real skills clearly lie in weaving tales based on his own bizarre perspective of the world. You see, Surya (Abhimanyu Dassani) suffers from 'congenital insensitivity to pain' - yes, he feels no pain no matter what the injury; which means he has led a (mostly) sequestered childhood, relying on his oddball grandfather and VHS tapes of martial arts movies to shape his personality.

If you're a Bollywood lover, born in the 90s, you've seen every kind of hero that could exist in our eco-system. But, fortunately, Surya (Abhimanyu Dassani) is a flawed yet entertaining mashup of all of them. Suffering from congenital insensitivity to pain, Surya feels no pain (just orgasms). He needs water to be hydrated all the time, as dehydration is the way through which he can be hurt.
